Lynchburg, Va., June 18—For the
time being, the plans are off to show
“The Green Pastures” here on its
southern, tour in October. When the
question was first raised, local
white business men raised a yelp,
stating that since Paramount, the
best house here, had no gallery for
colored, to bring the show in would
cause. Whites had a feeling that the
Paramount is much to good for the
colored patrons.
When the manager of the Para
mount ran a slide information his
white patrons that he could get
“The Green Pastures” if they want
ed it, the applause was so sparse
that he gave up the idea.
Lynchburg is the only city in the
South where prejudice has been al
lowed to block the playing of the
most successful show of recent
Miss Mary Bruce and her husband
Andrew Johnson, 5228 S. Parkway
and Lawrence A. Newbv, Assistant

burgh, Philadelphia Baltimore and
New York City. Miss Bruce spent
most of her time on Broadway in
New York city seeing the big musi
■'il shows and gained a number of
new ideas which she intends to in
corporate in her big show which
>’ne will "ive August 10 at the Black
stone theatre.

Pullman Porters
Continued From Page One
Brotherhood Enthusiastic
Brotherhood leaders are quite en
thusiastic over the passing of Senate
Bill 3266 and House Bill 8996, em
bodying the amendments to the Rail
way Labor Act, since, besides, pres
sing the case of the porters and
maide against the principals of the
company union at the Senate and
House Committee hearings, they
interviewed a large number of sen
ators and congressmen in the in
terest of the Bill, and enlisted the
support of civic, religious, educa
tional and fraternal organizations
for the measure which played a
signal role in defeating the cause
of the company union forces, and
rendering the enactment of the law
possible, observed Randolph, who
spoke at a monster mass meeting
last Sunday at the St. Marks M.
E. Church, in a nation-wide cam
paign to prepare the Brotherhood
to function under the amendment.
The new rail measure outlaws
the company unions and yellow dog
contracts, an objective the organiz
ed workers have been seeking to
achieve for over a generation, and
w hich the Pennsylvania and other
open shop railway systems and the
Pullman Company, have attempted
to maintain. No longer can the
carriers finance employes’ organiza
tions, thereby establishing autocrats
control over the workers. No longer
need tht workers, Pullman porters
and maids, engineers, firemen shop
craftsmen, or whatnot, hae any fear
at all either to join the Brotherhood
of Sleeping Car Porters or any
, union, said the porters’ leader, Mr.
' Randolph.
ror the violation oi any ot tne
provisions of the Act, granting
workers the rights self-or
tion aud the selection and the desig
nation of representatives of their
own choosing, the carriers or the
agents of the carrriers, are liable to
a penalty of from $1,000 to $20,000
or imprisonment for six months or
National boards of adjustment
and medistion will be set up under
the law for settlement of disputes
that may arise between the workers
and the management, and povisions
are made for the determination of
the choice of railway employes as
to which organization they wish to
represent them, in the form ot
elections that shall be held under
the supervision of the Government,
free from intimation, coercion or in
terference by he carriers, declared
A stampede among the porters
and maids from New York to Calif
ornia and from Jacksonville, Fla.,
to Minnesota, has already set in, to
join or reinstate in the Brother hood
of Sleeping Car Porters, realizing
as they do now that the Pullman
Company, nor its agents or stool
pigeons, can penalize or victimize
them for exercising their right to
join and be active in the Union/'
